They are only beautiful dead bodies before they become adults,

Laying sadly in a beautiful mausoleum

Roses on their heads, jasmine on their feet,

So are the desires that passed

Without having been able to be satisfied,

Without having known a single night of pleasure, or radiant mornings.

 

Constantin Cavafy

Désirs (1904)
